I sure remember those "one ringers". I think the guidance was the same in every VHF DXers house around the country. "Don't even think of answering the phone until it rings more than once!" We would always ring up with one ring at the start of the sked to let the other person know we were there and everything was OK. High winds, blown up power supplies, flooded basements, and Ice storms, all could wreck a moonbounce sked! I remember burning my hand just before one schedule, and recall going out to untie the 144 MHz array while keeping my hand stuck in a bucket of ice water. It worked, and I completed the schedule. Those "one ringers" sure made life easy back then.
